projects. it is to get more students out of larger units and into the smaller units in the city. particularly i want to thank you the planning staff that did on this. a few of you have been there through the wool process. please move this forward >> thank you. >> good afternoon commissioners my name is david i'm with the college of the arts. where a 1 hundred and 6-year-old institution founded during the earthquake. the lack of affordable student housing in the city is impacting the ability of san francisco colleges to attract the best student. as you know the colleges have been working with each other in the san francisco area that will help developmenters to bring solutions to our area. when i searched the business wants to review some of the milestones in this issue i came across some articles. as tim mentioned terrific work by planning staff has been tremors and ron if you're watching thank you. students bring a unique housing opportunity. they don't drag things along as they move instead, they arrive in san francisco with a bike they walk bike or take transit everywhere.
of the $20,000 per unit came forward. i know that one of -- the thinking behind it is that fee can go into the affordable housing fund, which i understand is a great idea. but i'm just wondering how that number came forward. currently i know to enter the lottery you pay a certain amount of fee, so kind of the cost of that, the administrative fees, and going through a bypass. just in general, how that number came to be. >> supervisor farrell: to supervisor kim's question, when you go through the lottery, let's say you win the lottery or convert otherwise, there is a fee to start the process going forward. that fee will not be waived. that will continue in time. this is a new and separate fee. the dollar amount out of that nee came from the nexus study conducted, studying the effects of a condo converse study two years ago. happy to provide you with that. but that's where that fee emanated from. >> co-chair kim: in terms of depending on the number of years obviously that fee reduces down to $4,000. i know there's concern about whether $4,000 per unit can mitigate the loss of rent contro
at 7 1/2 and 8% mortgages here in our city. on a typical 500,000 unit that's a difference between paying 2500 a month and 1200 in mortgage. that's the difference between staying in our city and leaving. as a city, as a state, as a counterwif spent significant amounts of money helping homeowners stay in their homes. on the federal level congress has passed a number of laws reducing the tax burden on homeowners facing foreclosure, expanding home ownership counseling, expanding the the federal housing administration to play a larger role for those at risk of foreclosure. obama signed the home affordable refinance program in 2010. locally we've done many things. in january 2008, this board of supervisors established a san francisco fair lending working group, with its number one policy recommendation of whenever possible, home ownership should be preserved and foreclosure prevented. this promotes family stability in our neighborhoods and community. second of all, the goal of this legislation was to provide security for tenants in t.i.c. buildings. supervisor wiener as coauthor want to
're not talking about tenants and buildings being able to buy their units. renters being able to buy their units. you're asking people who are a higher income group being able to kick out people, often with a middle man, a speculator, doing it. if folks here wanted to live in a unit they would be asking you to pass this with a 10 year ban on renting or selling the unit. before it could be sold. but many people are going to condo convert and then flip it. my friend actually owns a t.i.c. he bought it for 260,000. his t.i.c. owner upstairs just sold their unit for 450. that was five years ago. so clearly you can sell your t.i.c. unit for some money. they knew what they were getting into when they bought the unit. there's a lottery. the lottery didn't start last week. my dad pays two-thirds of his income in rent. his building just sold. i'm really scared. >> chair wiener: thank you. next speaker. >> i have my card here. my name's jennifer grant, i've lived in san francisco for 25 years. i've worked at nonprofits that entire time, nonprofits funded by the san francisco. i ran two of the battered wom
there but who's paying the price for that. it's been said that this proposal creates new -- no new housing units. some t.i.c. owners complain that they can't get their units refinanced because of the ways loans are structured. ace feels there pain, but they must organize themselves in groups, and demand better mortgage deals of the 1% to open up flood gates and push people out of the city or onto the streets is not the answer. thank you very much. >> chair wiener: thank you. next speaker. >> thank you much again for being here and supporting us and to everybody out here. seems to be a lot of support for both sides. my name is cole. i work as an administrator for a music school, which is a nonprofit that's been going for 40 years. i am administrator and outreach director. i teach music to areas all over the city and the majority of the people that work for me, or that work for us, are younger, poorer, musician creative types that if they were to lose their -- the housing that they have, one will be here later to speak, it would put them in a position where they would have to leench. when i moved

right now, and there are great pressures on renters to be removed from units. i think this is another tool in the toolbox of landlords and real estate interest, to remove us from our units. i've been in my unit since 1988. i could not live in san francisco without this -- without living in rent control, and living in this unit. if i moved, my rent would triple or quadruple. i don't believe there's any enforcement in -- i don't think that the lifetime leases, from what i've seen today, from dpw, and the city attorney, that there are any real enforcement mechanisms. regardless of whether this would conflict with state law, the costa hawkins law, or ellis law. from what i've seen is the city attorney and dpw are in a state of confusion about who would enforce this, and whether they even have staff or finances to do so. so this law is being proposed without any thorough thinking-through of the enforcement mechanism. who would do it, and whether there's any resources to do it. and i agree that there are a lot less provisions for lifetime leases in this than there have been in parkmerced. m

it cost the nation? in 1867, when the united states purchased the territory of alaska from russia, the acquisition was derided as wasted money. a century later, after two gold rushes, alaska braced for another. the new gold was oil. millions of barrels lay beneath the permafrost. during the 1970s, when the skyrocketing price of foreign oil threatened to devastate the american economy, alaskan oil seemed to promise hope for american energy independence. then along came 1979. revolutionary shock waves spread through islamic nations. iran cut off petroleum exports to the united states. america felt it was held hostage by dependence on foreign oil. as the price of a gallon of gas passed a dollar, congress debated closing off 100 million alaskan acres to mineral exploitation. the bill would double our national park system. alaska congressman don young was outraged. how selfish and ridiculous can we be when we think we can live within ourselves? we have billions of people in asia alone, south america is suffering from starvation, and we're going to set aside 175 million acres of land fo

the countries and businesses depend more on the banking system than they do here in the united states. why? because with a more developed capital market. and so that it was developed capital market, so although it is starting to develop more rapidly. and so the key as i said to getting them back to growth is the banking system. and so all the things i've mentioned here are very important. european central bank has put in the ltros, three-year loans at 1%. they did that a year ago. and now they've done the omb. they've lessened the amount of collateral necessary to par with european central banks. and the banking system there has been shedding assets because they had to raise additional capital. and they've income stream more on that been thinking, unfortunately, and a lot of you in this room are aware of that. and some of the benefactors of that, beneficiaries are japanese banks have been buying portfolios and investors like will up on the market. but we've got to get the european banks back up to lending. that is key to all of what i have said here. then i would just say a few words about
standards.
